2:22am
those rules aren't real. >> they were real the day i wore a vest. >> because that vest was disgusting. >> you can't sit with us! >> that's a scene from "mean girls," the movie that brought bullying to the big screen. but bullying isn't funny. headlines are making more and more, most recently a viral of kids bullying this sweet woman. bullying her until she was in tears. >> how do you teach your child to stand up to the tough guys or the tough girls? jennifer is a parenting and adolescent therapist and kelly wallace is the chief correspondent for ivillage. >> chief! nice. >> nice to be the chief. >> two things bothered us the first time we saw it. number one, these children were bullying this very sweet, innocent vulnerable lady that broke your heart. number two, no other children seemed to stand up to the bullies and do the right thing and make them stop. what are we to make of all of this? >> that's a good question. i'm a parent. i have two little girls, 6 and 4 1/2.
2:23am
a lot of moms have been talking about what can we do? one thing is teaching empathy. you can use this as a teachable moment. show your kids if they're old enough to see it and deal with it and ask, how would you feel if you were in that situation? >> or if that was your grandma. >> right. what would you do? if you switch the roles, it gives them more confidence to stand up. >> you wonder why some kids are bullies in the first place. sometimes they come from parents who are bullies. we've seen that. sometimes they've been bullied themselves. >> so did they learn it some place? >> those are two really important reasons. they might have it modeled for them, the people and adults in their life are bullies. they might have been bullied so they turn it around. maybe they have low self-esteem so they join in, which seemingly is what happened on this bus, to feel like they're part of the in crowd and are popular. or maybe there's something going on at home that nobody really knows about. >> you don't want to judge until you know details. what about the kids who don't
2:24am
say a word? >> there's the old bystander effect. they are waiting for someone else maybe to step in. that could be part of it. the other part we have to consider is, these are four kids bullying somebody. am i going to be the dissenter? and are they going to turn on me? how will i feel about that? there is a fear, especially 12, 13, 14 years old. >> if your kid gets bullied and comes home and say, this happened. a lot of parents say you stand up to that person. you push them back. is that a good technique? >> it's so funny because i took this book out called "the berenstain bears and the bully." . the sister bear learns to box to beat up the bully. but that's not right. >> violence is not the answer. >> it isn't. i want you to use their words. express your emotions, reach out to a grown-up, talk to other people. use those resources around us. violence is not the answer. >> is it true most bullies are really cowards? that if somebody stands up to
2:25am
them they will actually back off? >> right. >> there's often this mask, i'm putting on a mask to show you i'm so tough. there's been research out that says the popular kids that are the bullies continue to bully to remain pop loor. there's this myth to do that. if you can't stand up, even if it's not with violence, it's being able to say i'm not going to accept you treat me this way. this is not okay to me. i think parents can accept that. >> one parent talks to the kids about the bully and what the victim feels like but also about the bully. she tries to teach her kids compassion for the bully, that there is something going on with that child. >> i taught cody that years ago. i taught him years ago about that. i heard him talking to christine's nephew one time. he goes, why do you think that kid does those bad things? and i heard cody say what i had said when cody was little, maybe he doesn't have a mommy and a daddy who love him. i thought, whoa, he was listening. wow. >> thank you. >> that's the key.
2:26am
they're always listening. you want to give those messages that are clear. >> thanks, ladies. >> great to see you. good behavior does get rewarded. that's why these two lucky ladies got plucked off the plaza. >> and as we speak they're getting treated to an ambush makeover, lucky ladies. but first these messages.
